BIPR:  Nurturing Minds, Changing Lives

Through our counseling, education, and training programs, we do change lives.  Our dedication to staying abreast of scientific studies in brain imaging and proven techniques helps us understand how the brain works, and therefore what interventions are the most likely to help.  Our early childhood programs and parent education programs work to prevent problems and intervene early.  Our counseling programs aid struggling individuals to help them become strong, healthy, productive family and community members.

Our expertise is in Trauma (including PTSD)  and Attachment though we can help with a number of different problems including depression, anxiety, ADHD, behavioral problems in children, relationship problems, couples issues, and many more.

BIPR offers low fee, affordable psychotherapy and Mental Health Services to children, adolescents, adults, families and couples through its effective, highly respected counseling program. BIPR uses a sliding fee scale based on a person’s ability to pay.

 Psychobabble… A Monthly Salon Series for Mental Health Professionals

sofa-row-smBoulder has a wealth of dedicated, highly knowledgeable mental health practitioners. Psychobabble provides opportunities for colleagues to gather in a less formal setting, socialize, network, promote your practices, and learn from one another while enjoying some wine and cheese on a late Friday afternoon.

Every month we spend the first half-hour socializing informally, then there is a one-hour presentation by a local Mental Health Professional, followed by a half-hour for Q&A and open discussion.

We so very much look forward to this monthly opportunity for collaborating and increasing our sense of professional community, especially given the private nature of the work that we do!

These monthly meetings will take place at Wilderness Early Learning Center – 2845 Wilderness Place, Boulder, CO 80301. Parking is free.

We are asking for a small donation so that we may provide wine and light refreshments for everyone. (A suggested $10 – $20 donation would be greatly appreciated)

These meetings will take place on the 3rd Friday of each month from 4 – 6 PM.

We ask you to please RSVP for this event so that we will know how many to expect and provide refreshments for. RSVP for the upcoming Psychobabble on the right-hand side of this screen.


Upcoming Presentations: 

4/17/15 – Joan Heron, LCSW
